Lucy from Kenya on Yesterday
The original plan was for Lucy to go to the OR today to have hardware on her leg adjusted. It was just going to be a quick procedure that she wouldn't even need to be asleep for, but the doctors unfortunately ran into some complications. The doctors made the call that they need to actually put her asleep in order to get in and fix everything properly. We had to check with Lucy's father who is on board as he only has his daughter's best interests at heart. All this to say, not much happened today, but Lucy will be going into surgery sometime this week! Please pray for this lovely girl as she goes through all these procedures and for the doctors treating her.

Joseph from Kenya on Yesterday
After praying for Joseph, the anesthetist went ahead to administer the anesthesia and shortly after, the procedure to correct Joseph’s deformity began. The procedure wasn’t new to the surgeons so it didn’t take too long. The surgery was successful and we thank God for this. Joseph now needs to rest as he recovers and we invite you to send him a ‘Get Well Message’ and pray for him!

Isaac from Kenya on 2 days ago
Isaac hasn’t been feeling great lately and that's why he is here today to see the doctor. He has been complaining of pain for the past couple of weeks and his dad couldn’t really put his finger on what could be the problem. Isaac’s x-ray shows the screws in his leg might have moved a little which could be the source of his pain. The doctor who saw Isaac advised Issac's dad to get a lab test done to determine whether Isaac has an infection at the point where the screws are slightly loose. The next step would mean going back to surgery to have the screws put back to place. Please whisper a prayer for Isaac that his pain would go away and that this issue would be taken care of as fast as possible.

Joseph from Kenya on 2 days ago
Earlier today, Joseph met George, one of our anesthetists here at CURE Kenya. George was checking to see if our little friend’s chest was clear and if he was ready to go in for surgery. Joseph found what George was doing to be fun and really enjoyed watching him. Joseph’s surgery is scheduled for today and we will tell you all about it tomorrow! Please pray that it goes well and that Joseph’s transformation will be a blessing to him and his mum.

Lucy from Kenya on 2 days ago
Our long time friend Lucy, came back to CURE Kenya last week! The reason is because her deformity has come back a little bit and she'll need another surgery. Despite remembering the pain she felt the last time, Lucy still affords to smile and brightens everyone around her. Please pray that her surgery will be successful and that she won’t need another procedure in future!

Raphael from Kenya on Mar 15, 2019
Raphael was given the green light to go home today! We prayed that God would go before them as they travel home. Before they left, Raphael was shown how to use his crutches, but we caught him resting after a few minutes of practice. His swelling was gone and we thank God for that. Please pray for smooth recovery at home.

Raphael from Kenya on Mar 14, 2019
During the doctor’s rounds this morning, one of the doctors noticed that Raphael’s leg had a little swelling. Although Raphael and his mum were looking forward to going home today, they were asked to stay so that we can observe the swelling and make sure it is nothing serious. It's a bummer, but we're pumped to have more time with this little one!

Lengai from Kenya on Mar 14, 2019
Lengai and his grandma get to go home today and we are very happy about this! It was so good to make a new friend and although we’d want to spend so much more time together, Lengai needs to go and recover at the comfort of his home. Please thank God with us for the amazing work HE has began in Lengai and pray that the next time we see Lengai he will be transformed!

Stephen from Kenya on Mar 13, 2019
Mama Stephen brought her son to our clinic today for his Ankle Foot Orthotic (AFO) measurements to be taken. We couldn’t help but notice an old scar on his forehead so we asked him what happened. “I was hit by a donkey while playing,” Stephen told us with a cheeky smile on his face. We are almost certain that the smile wasn’t there when it happened but thank God that he is here now and that he can smile as he tells the story. Two things happened during today’s clinic. The doctor was able to look at Stephen’s wound and also review his x-ray, then measurements were taken for his new AFO. He will wear a new cast for six weeks as we get his AFO ready and we will see them again when they come to collect it.

Morgan from Kenya on Mar 13, 2019
Morgan and his mum travelled for close to five hours to come for a review during today’s general orthopedics clinic! We were excited to see our pilot friend and more so to hear about all the progress he has made. Today, Morgan had his pins taken out and measurements for his orthotic taken. His healing process is going on as expected and we thank God for being so gracious to Morgan. Our Captain also met Peter the guard and made a new friend today!

Mesiyieki from Kenya on Mar 13, 2019
Mesiyieki was ‘very angry’ when he came to CURE Kenya today for clinic. He was supposed to come a week ago but the date was changed because of some logistics back at home. He had really looked forward to having his cast removed. However, since he got here today he was able to cheer up. He was shocked to learn that we still remembered his name and even made a joke about this in his native language. Mesiyieki had his cast removed and his pins were also taken out. He was disappointed that he still has to wear another cast for another 4-6 weeks but his guardian was able to encourage him. His guardian told us that Mesiyieki had been talking about how he can’t wait to play soccer when he is healed. Friends please pray for Mesiyieki’s dream to come true when he is done with his correction process!

Raphael from Kenya on Mar 13, 2019
Mama Raphael spent most of this morning trying to get her son to take some breakfast so he can at least gain energy to do physical therapy exercises. She did it so passionately because that’s what mothers do and we thank God for her. Raphael took some tea and bread and went back to sleep. Mama Raphael told us that her son had a peaceful night, at least most of it, and when he had pain he was quickly assisted. We hope that Raphael will have a successful physiotherapy session today. Please keep praying for our boy!

Lengai from Kenya on Mar 13, 2019
In the book of Nehemiah 8:10 Ezra was speaking to the remnant of Israel who returned to Judah to rebuild the city and the temple. This was a time of restoration not only for the city but also of obedience to the law of God. Ezra said, “The joy of the Lord is your strength.” This is a time of restoration for Lengai and as you can see, the Lord has been so good to him to give him so much joy which is His strength! Friends, please thank God with us for Lengai’s transformation journey and pray that it will run smoothly to the end.

“Hi Gugu! Are you well?” We asked Lengai’s grandma the morning before his surgery. “Sidai oleng!” She responded in Maasai saying she was very good. She had a hard time trying to get Lengai not to eat anything but was assisted by other mums in her cubicle. Lengai’s surgery didn’t involve so much as it was releasing his tendon that was tight causing him to walk on his toes. He will now need to wear a cast as he recovers so that when the cast is taken off, his tendon will be the right length and he will be able to step down with his foot. Thank you for praying for our brave boy!

Raphael from Kenya on Mar 12, 2019
After waiting for most of the day, it was finally time for Raphael’s surgery. It is common for kids to cry when their mums or dads leave them in theatre and Raphael had this moment too. He was encouraged by John ,our anesthetist at CURE Kenya, and was able to calm down. His surgery was pretty straight forward and within no time, the doctors were done. We caught our friend in the recovery area where PACU nurse Nancy was watching him and helping him recover. Please pray that Raphael’s healing will be smooth and that God will help him shake off his pain!

Why I Support CURE

Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
